It has moderate alcohol percentage and is matured for more than two weeks to give a mellow and smooth flavor. It has a smooth and clean taste and Danish character on account of the pure culture yeast imported from Denmark.

lusikka (6032) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2013
500 ml bottle @ Mount Sherpa, Kuopio. Thanks tiong!
Pours a pale golden colour with a small head. Large visible bubbles. Aroma of wet paper, grains and some grass. Flavour of strong wet paper notes, metals, soap, grass, grains. Light bodied, hard carbonation and a mild grainy finish. Bad.

tiong (3679) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2013
500ml bottle @ Mount Sherpa, Kuopio

Pours clear golden with a small head. Aroma of crisp bready notes, starch and hints of metal. Taste is smooth, metallic and starchy with hints of malts. Finish is smooth, watery and easygoing. Decent pale lager, nothing special here.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle in Kathmandu. Sweet, corny nose. Soft texture with prickly carbonation. Overriding sweetness (sugar, corn, milk). Mild, peppery, drying bitterness. Dry and vapid finish. Entirely unexciting and unflavored.

kwik-lime (1243) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle from Monty’s in Kingston. Smooth but lacking in much character, a touch of soap and a somewhat watery palate. Fine as curry fodder.

mabjork (667) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Bottled. Drank at mantra in Helsinki. Hazy golden in color. Minor vanishing lacings. The aroma is almost citric. The taste comeback to its full potential with the hot Himalayan cousine. Nice.

marcusrr (25) - London, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2013
Stronger and rounder, but it sadly brings out the average flavours the crispness of Everest did well to hide. Tastes a bit of rice pudding, which is fine if you’re tasting rice pudding but not so with a beer. Fosters-esque.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2012
I agree with the Swedish rater. There is nothing special about this beer, but at least there’s nothing bad about it either.
